SEBASTIAN SHAKESPEARE: Sarah Ferguson gets royal treatment on board Etihad flight to Dubai wearing sparkling golden ‘crowned’ loafers

Has the Duchess of York’s welcome back into the Firm gone to her head — or rather her feet?

Flying from London to the United Arab Emirates this week, Prince Andrew’s ex-wife boarded her Etihad Airways flight in navy loafers with eye-catching gold crowns on the front, teamed with a black skirt and blue pashmina.

It didn’t go as smoothly as she’d hoped, judging by the alarmed look in her eyes in the picture she posted online after being ambushed by a large white cockatoo.

‘The Birds’ she captions it, alluding to Hitchcock’s famous horror film.

Seventies chart-topper Steve Harley denies he is selling out after the makers of Viagra used his hit Make Me Smile (Come Up And See Me) in their latest TV advert for the drug. 

‘Male impotence was the last thing on my mind when I wrote the song,’ says the 67-year-old Cockney Rebel singer.
